700 . . .  But Who's Counting ? ?

As I was getting ready to write this post, I noticed that as of my last post, I have blogged 700 times.  Wowzer.  But really, if I had been more faithful, I could have achieved that many in just two years, and the last I noticed, I began this blog in July of 2006 -- 5 years ago. (I actually had to go back and look because I forgot -- but I know it was the summer I went to Hawaii for the first time to help my daughter get settled in for graduate school.)

So I've averaged 140 posts / year, which really isn't terribly accurate because for one year I posted every day (minus about 3 times) during a challenge I had with some friends.  Anyway . . . I'm sure these statistics aren't knocking your socks off, but I'm impressed that I've kept this up for 5 years.

So . . . . in light of that bit of trivia, here's my post for today.  Actually, I made these images yesterday.  I had an assignment to create some holiday images.  I converted my sewing room into a temporary photo studio and this is what I came up with . . . so far.  I have a few more ideas, but I needed to go for a bike ride today.

My temporary "studio" has north facing windows, but they're small and the light is uneven, so I had to use a flash.  I took it off the camer and bounced it off the ceiling to avoid creating shadows.  I think I've got the beginning of a Christmas card collection. 

So there you have it, post #701.  Merry Christmas!

Very cool! It's way too early to be thinking about Christmas though! You're bumming me out! I find your stat about 700 posts amazing! I can't even imagine getting to that point. But I'm sure it will go quicker than I think.

Great images, Linda...they'll make terrific holiday cards! I'm curious...who was the assignment for?
